#156 Powdered eggs and tripe

I met two upbeat people on Friday. Thinking about it, they probably did vote out but I don't know for sure. I like to think that one of them might just have been a positive pickle. They were saying things like "Well nothing's actually changed yet" and "you don't HAVE to be miserable about it". That kind of acceptance sounds like quite a smart attitude to have given the result. Perhaps some people will drift towards it over time.

One of my first thoughts as I checked my phone on the tube on Friday morning was "shall I buy some shares?" followed by "I wonder if this'll make people on Tinder more or less likely to want to go on dates". It's probably not the most important concern to have, even for me. When you've run out of 18 to 55 year olds to swipe within a 31 mile radius, who cares about the effect of Brexit?

Many care quite a lot though. I heard a friend's colleage was crying at her desk. Another guy I know has actually unfriended some people on Facebook over it. That's like the 2016 equivelant of egging someone's house. Thank God. Egg's a massive bitch to remove from brickwork.
